Hi Everyone,

I have arrived at a startling revelation about a rival piano related website on the internet. Before I proceed to disclose this here, I am concerned about the appropriateness of the discussion in these forums as it is - after - a rival to the same market space as Piano World.

Maybe a moderator can green light this?

If so then I will proceed to lay out what I have discovered, and with such discovery having been achieved by dint of intellectual analysis, that seems to be true about the website in question.

It is a most astonishing and fascinating find, indeed, if it is true!

If it's the website I think, then people have been posting recordings which are hosted there, so I doubt there's any issue.

Now, if it's close to libel, thhink about it...

Hi Nikolas,

The conclusion, with its basis in ratiocination, is in no way libelous. I have often wondered if such as is desired to be reported here would eventually occur in the history of the world wide web, and possibly here we have one of the first significant instances. There may be trivial instances of such phenomena as this out there, yet, if so, I am unaware of them - my mind is quite aloof in respect to, and also is well shielded from, all manner of triviality, and this personal attribute of mine is something of which you may be aware. wink

I am quite eager to relate here the extraordinary finding, and to see if anyone comes forward in disputation.

Maybe it at least could be yellow lighted, rather than green lighted . . . ?

p.s. - Sorry about the non-performance with the forest walk thread. This is coming as well and in due course.

The language you use is so unnecessarily posh, over-the-top and old fashioned that I can only conclude you are doing it on purpose. It only makes it harder to understand you. That's why our friend above uttered his bewilderment.

I suggest that you start using more regular language.

I doubt he did it on purpose. That's just how he writes (sometimes). smile
I think if you were here longer you'd be used to it.

BTW, it strikes me somewhat the same. But that's just how he writes. The way I write strikes some people too. grin

Whilst we earthlings ponder the imponderable mysteries of the cosmos, let us listen to this enigma:

If you have something to say, please say it. Surely it can be broached in such terms with necessary caveats to guard it from being libelous.

Maybe some don't like carrots!

If you have something to say, just say it. If it's not appropriate, the moderators will delete it, or ask you to rewrite it.

And since you still have not posted it, I doubt you are that eager after all...


Everything is possible, and nothing is sure.

Or is it the language button that allows users to post in several non-English languages to blame ? We might be seeing the English version of something written in another language.

Hi BruceD,

It is not at all libelous. It is addressed to no person's character, and has, rather, a most firm basis in ratiocination.

Hi PatH,

I am quite eager to go on record as the first person to have achieved this particular observation, the truth of which is directly before all persons' eyes and yet has been seen by none until today.

I have harboured a feeling that something wasn't "right" about the website, that something seemed very odd - and this has been so since my very first day of visit to the site.

Today, though, I observed a fact which finally brought everything into clear focus - with some help from ratiocination, of course.

I am awaiting a yellow light before proceeding as I do not want to breach any unspoken rules of decorum at Piano World. I have a sense that to say, "Hi, look at this rival piano site over here!" isn't something one just does without at least some clearance. I promise that I am not stringing you all along here. Though I can be a humorist, there is nothing of humour in this finding, and it is all of sincere substance.

And it is, indeed, quite an astonishing finding when one considers for how many years a particular matter of fact may have gone on, undetected by all members and observers.

The finding may be incorrect, yet if it is incorrect, then someone somewhere will have a lot of explaining to do regarding the observations which combine through methods of ratiocination to establish my hypothesis.

Withal I should let it be known: I did tell another, who was present before me in the flesh, today of this finding, and the response was a rolling movement of the eyes, and also the question, "Why is it important?"

There are two piano forum sites similar to Piano World that I know of.

One is Piano Street (http://www.pianostreet.com/smf/index.php) which seems pretty legit. There are a few PW posters who post there too, based on usernames. There other is Da Speed Demon Community (http://www.dasdc.net/forum/index.php) which speaks in a kind of internet slang, and has a lot of sharp members. Not as active these days as PW or Piano Street.

I'm sure there are others, including Reddit subreddits, but I haven't looked into them.

This thread is ridiculous. smile

Michael,

Just post what you've deduced. It's probably not that big a deal, unless it is run by the CIA or a recruiting arm for ISIS.

I am a member of both PW & PS and used to post frequently on both sites. I stopped posting on the other forum when some of the other members whose input I highly valued stopped posting. I still drop by once in awhile albeit under a different user name.

What the Van Der Hagen has this got to do with rotten fish in Denmark or the Sibyl Temple? ha

If this has something to do with rmmp (rec.music.makers.piano Google Groups), I'll roll my eyes.

I know what he's deduced. Piano Street rhymes with Sesame Street. One of the characters on Sesame Street is Oscar the Grouch. Oscar lives in a trash can. Trash cans are emptied by waste management companies. Waste management companies are fronts for the mob. Therefore, Piano Street is run by the mob. That's it, isn't it?
